Rector's Welcome

Here at The Glasgow Academy we work hard to give children the very best start in life. 

Our happy, vibrant and family-friendly community provides girls and boys, from age 3 to 18, with an exceptional range of exciting opportunities, engaging learning and smooth transitions from one year to the next.

We have outstanding staff who share their expertise and knowledge and give of themselves to ensure children achieve every possible success. Our young people's fine examination results, university outcomes and high achievements in numerous activities speak for themselves.

We encourage 'can do, will do', independent thinking and resilience, creating articulate, confident and well-rounded children with strong values.  We care a lot that they will go on to lead happy and fulfilling lives.

Our award-winning facilities, first-class resources, encouragement and high-expectation ethos offer a transformational experience.

Children can take advantage of numerous opportunities to discover their individual talents and potential, be it academically, musically, in sport, on stage, up a mountain or in one of our 100 or so clubs, activities and ensembles.

Come and meet our children and staff and see The Academy for yourself.
